Not sure why I haven't writ this place up before, but the new, improved, moved Duckworth's 2.0 in Charlotte is so fantastic that it is high time to do so.

Where to start? Ok, food. The food portions here are enormous, absurd. Cheap, too, for what you get. The FULL menu is available till 2am and the fare is all above average. My personal favorites include the cheeseburger with jalapeno bacon, the ribeye and pizza. It's all good. I am convinced that the nachos use an entire bag of chips; they feed 4 or more. They always have meal specials of some sort here.

Service: adequate to great, depending on who you get. The GM Mike is as good as they get. It does get slam-packed busy on weekends here, but what do you expect? The word is out.

Beer: Prices and pours are quite reasonable, often times bordering on dirt-cheap. Tuesdays and Thursdays nearly all 60 taps (did I mention they have 60 taps? They have 60 taps) are $2.50. I have drunk $2.50 Allagah Victor / Victoria, 90 Minute, Founders Breakfast Stout and more here. The bottle selection is quite extensive and a little-known secret is that you can take beer to go. Barrel Aged BORIS for $15 a bomber out the door? Yes please.

The bartenders are competent, and everything is served properly in a proper glass. No frosted mugs or short pour crap here. The list is extensive and heavily regional (Highland, Duck Rabbit, Foothills), and boasts a bunch of Oskar Blues and Allagash. The most mainstream beer I've seen is Yuengling. Absolutely no BMC. Did I mention they have 60 taps, and it is all GOOD beer? For Charlotte this is a revelation.

Events: Duckworth's is always doing something or other, from cask fests to the random cask on the bar, to bringing in the Stone CEO and putting 40 Stone beers on tap. I do not know of any other Charlotte beer bar to do so many BA-worthy events.

Downsides: Parking fills up quickly, there are a few TOO many TVs for my taste, and it does get loud. That's about it.

Bottom line: Duckworth's is easily the best beer bar in Charlotte and gets my vote for best beer bar in the Carolinas. (Thirsty Monk being a close second.) So, there ya go. I travel a lot and visit lots of quality beer bars, but Duckworth's is now firing on all cylinders and is only getting better.

If you only visit one craft beer bar in Charlotte, make it Duckworth's.
